  1. Hi Steph welcome along Hope we can encourage you to continue your good luck
  2. I have a copy of the 1962 Book "How I Fish" by Dennis Pye Broadland Angler Chapters on Pike Rudd Roach and Tench on the broads Offers please.
  3. As a former broads matchman the eel population just crashed within one season! Oh how we used to moan about them but it's worrying not to catch them anymore
  4. Welcome to the forum. Here is a reminder of the wallis cast
  5. With the last few weeks fishless at night is has to be the Optonic song. "Silent Night"
  6. Lamprey a River Waveney best bait. Still use Spratt on the drains or smaller waters. I never fish without injecting salmon oil in my dead baits
  7. I would attempt to catch every species of freshwater fish I could make up your own Great Rod Race.
  8. Personally I would stick with the 300's and 310's Unless u wanna sell em to me lol I loved the 308 best reel and nice and simple to use.
  9. When I first started fishing in 1981 my training ground was Kessingland Sluice in Suffolk along the River Hundred more like a drain than a river. I was taught by a Roach angler and I would set up a Drennan Stillwater blue with 2lb ine a 1lb bottom and 18 fine wire hook fishing single caster. It was under the rod tip fishing and my PB then was 2 lb 4oz In the winter I fished with another Roach angler on the River Hundred Stretch off the A12 along the Latymere Dam Bread Flake produced less than 3 2lb roach per winter. in the 2st C Mink and Otters and continued pumping of the river due to mild we
  10. This makes me so angry this is why we should keep our catches secret. http://www.lowestoftjournal.co.uk/news/inv..._broad_1_815209
  11. Yes it Did it was hooked in the chops before the hooks fell out in the net!
  12. A jointed Plug from Fox, It was a good run too, Bumped off two Further Fish which were hopefully Pike LOL
  13. Caught this on a plug whilst Piking on local Cut (I have several witnesses)
  14. Just been down to my tidal river looks high but may be ok for monday's session
  15. My method is 22 or smaller hooks, Barbless fine wire. 1lb mainline 8oz bottom, One pinkie on a link ledger. trickle say three pinkies increasing to four or five if u catch. Everyhting has to be so fine that you are just after getting any fish. HTH Benacre.
  16. Well I make my own weights dig my own worms and re sharpen my hooks but I expect I spend a good deal. I always tell the FPO its better than widdling it up the wall or smoking it away.
  17. Thats messed up my River we had lots of rain too along with galeforce winds. Will go down and have a look at the damage in the morning It may ruin the river until the end of the season
  18. Trouble is we don't see 40 Policeman peeling off to their footbeat anymore, I cannot remember when I last saw a policeman on foot.
  19. Is it un-fishable or can you ledger cheesepaste or bread?
  20. Too many rules for a start. You never really know if you are doing right or wrong. I got fed up with all the rules years ago and stopped going there. Lobworms used to work for me in winter though.
  21. So who has written to tell him? I have.
  22. I have the John Wilson centre pin It is expensive but a great reel for close in fishing or long trotting a real joy to use
  23. Good job it don't mention my favourite free stretches on the Waveney there is ten miles of it. Some of the eastern area rivers mentioned as free are actually day ticket or club waters now. I wonder how old the site is?
  24. Give me Optonics anytime. This will soon get lost if I used one of these 999 alarms
